Overview

A welcome addition to the pantheon of early reader books

Meet Rose and Riley, a vole and a groundhog, who are best friends. And like all best friends, they don't always see eye to eye. Whether it is best to carry an umbrella when rain is predicted but there isn't a cloud in the sky, or a good idea to celebrate un-birthdays (a birthday party every day!) or learn how to stop worrying, these two friends demonstrate, with their true affection for one another, the importance of discussion and why opposites attract.

The very simple text, coupled with adorable watercolors, will charm those just starting to read.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Three stories about the friendship between a vole and a groundhog. Little Rose, a worrier, sits under her umbrella waiting for rain while her friend Riley cavorts in the sunshine. Next she is concerned about what would happen if everybody celebrated un-birthdays. Finally, Riley makes his pal "worry" dolls so that she can sleep. Throughout the book, there is a feeling of how comforting it is to have a friend. Soft pastel illustrations add to the warmth of the text while repetition eases the decoding. A sweet, thoughtful offering with two memorable characters.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A three-chapter easy reader with the now predictable two anthropomorphized animal friends. The stories are predictable too, although that doesn't mean they won't be welcomed by children for whom they might be familiar. Rose is a small vole and Riley is a big groundhog. In "Rain," Rose keeps her umbrella up all day, ready for rain, while Riley puts his away and enjoys the sunny day. When it does start to rain, Rose's umbrella can't keep both of them dry, but Riley comes up with a solution for next time. In "The Un-Birthday Party" Rose plans an un-birthday party so vividly that Riley wants one too, and then they figure out together that isn't really such a good idea. When Rose, taking a page from Wemberly, worries about everything, Riley makes her a set of worry dolls out of toothpicks and thread-and they work. Yezerski's soft pastels have just enough charm, energy and cuteness to match the gentle stories. (Easy reader. 5-8)
